If you are not confident in yourself, do you honestly believe that others should be confident in you? Well, they would want to believe that you have the full potential to accomplish great things but then sometimes their belief is eventually destroyed because of the lack of self confidence in yourself.

I can remember when I was younger I would be so negative that I would say I won’t be able to do this or that and persons would ask, “Why can’t you start thinking positive?”. Sometimes I would get the feeling that they are ready to give up on me but I was wrong. I sat and asked myself, “What is the point of others thinking that I will be great when I myself do not even believe that I can be.  I can tell you it was difficult changing my negative approach at life but I can say that positive things started happening when I started to gain self confidence.



There is a fine line between pride and self-confidence, legitimate self trust is the success. The real test of self-confidence is the spirit to stay open– to have change and new thoughts irrespective of their origin. Self-assured people are not scared to get their views disputed. They enjoy the mental conflict that enriches minds. 

My advise to you is to start thinking positive and gain self confidence or else there is no point of others to believe in you.

Hi, I am Alecia Hall, the creater of “Brea-kin Barriers” and I am from St. Mary Jamaica. I have been a Customer Service Representative at Digicel Jamaica for over 4 years and started working as a Virtual Assistant on Fiverr in February 2020.

I have gained customers from the US, UK, Hong Kong, Barbados & my very own, Jamaica. Some of my tasks as a Virtual Assistant includes proofreading & editing, data entry, research, transcribing, handling emails, and more.

I started this website “Brea-kin Barriers” to offer several benefical services to my readers which includes:

Inspirational quotes and reflections
How to earn additional income online
My Virtual Assistant Services
An online Course: Your Breakthrough To Growth & Success: Shattering all negative barriers
And a step by step guide on How To Start a Blog

The term breaking barriers is something that I am very passionate about and I love to see persons rising to the surface, “shattering the glass ceiling” as they start to grow until they have reached success. I am one known for always encouraging others and is reliable when it comes on to motivation.

My favourite quote that I live by is “The race is not for the swift but for those who can endure to the end”.

The fastest one does not always win the race and the battle does not necessarily mean it’s for the strong. After all, I believe that sometimes you have to through a dark tunnel and sometimes life has to throw you lots of lemons before you can get grapes to make wine.
